What We're Learning: Biology

This week in Matt Cope's Biology class, students participated in a Concept Attainment activity. Concept Attainment is an inquiry learning strategy where students investigate group or category by comparing and contrasting samples.  

Cope's lesson asked students to identify the traits and properties of macromolecules. This strategy helps students make connections between what they already know and what they will be learning.

At the beginning of each school year, faculty from around the district come together to hear a positive, empowering message to kick off the new school year. This year's speaker and message was one of the best I've been to; which is really saying something. Author and speaker Kevin Brown shared with us the idea and message of putting forth a H.E.R.O.'s effort.
 
A HERO:
  • Helps people with no strings attached.  
  • Creates an Exceptional Experience for the people they serve.

New schedule aims for increased students success

Landmark's teachers and staff have been looking forward to this school year since before last year's graduation! They spent a good portion of last year researching and laying the groundwork for the implementation of a new schedule for the 17-18 school year.

Each traditional term of 10 class courses will now be split into two mini-terms consisting of 5 courses each. The new 'Mini-term' schedule encourages teacher-student relationships, reduces student course load, offer more fresh starts, and promotes student accountability, while retaining the credit load of the old schedule.
